A CIRENCESTER teenager accused of carrying out a burglary while armed with an imitation firearm has pleaded guilty to affray.
Barry Bramble had been due to stand trial at Swindon crown court next month, alongside two others, accused of aggravated burglary.
But after the 19-year-old, of Millennium Way, admitted the public order offence prosecutors said they would drop the more serious charge.
Barry, Rowell Bramble, 24, and a 17-year-old, who can't be named for legal reasons, all pleaded guilty to affray.
The case of the two adults involved was adjourned until April 5 for pre-sentence reports.
Barry and Rowell, of Stoke Newington, north London, were both released on conditional bail until then.
The 17-year-old, also from Cirencester, will be sentenced at Swindon youth court next week.
It had been alleged the gang had an imitation firearm when they went to a house in Alfred Street, Swindon, on September 9 last year, with the intent to steal.
The prosecution said the lesser charges were acceptable after reviewing statements from the victim.
